According to a recent report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Logistics Market by Mode of Transport and End Use: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027,” 

The global logistics market was valued at $7,641.20 billion in 2017, and is projected to reach $12,975.64 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.5% from 2020 to 2027.

Asia-Pacific dominates the market, in terms of revenue, followed by North America, Europe, and LAMEA. China dominated the global logistics market share in 2019, and is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period, owing to rapid growth in cross-border e-commerce transactions and strong growth in industrial & manufacturing activities coupled with increasing cross-border trade & export activities.

Logistics services are widely being used in various applications, including warehousing, procurement, supply chain, material handling, inbound & outbound transportation, packaging, and inventory management. By mode of transport, the logistics market is categorized into railways, airways, roadways, and waterways. Among these, roadways are the most common mode of logistics transportation, owing to maximum geographical penetration. 

Logistics refers to the process of planning, implementing, coordinating resources, and managing the flow of things from the point of origin to the final point of consumption. Resources, which are managed in logistics can include tangible items, such as liquids, equipment, materials, food products; and intangible goods such as information. The process of logistics assists in efficient and effective transportation & storage of goods as well as planning of related services. Logistics management primarily includes production, packaging, inventory, warehousing, security, material handling, integration of information, inbound & outbound transportation, and supply/demand planning of third-party providers.

By mode of transport, the logistics market is categorized into railways, airways, roadways, and waterways. The roadways segment accounted for the highest revenue in 2017, owing to low capital investment, maximum geographical penetration, and increasing demand for door-to-door delivery. However, the waterways segment is anticipated to witness highest CAGR of 7.40% during the forecast period, owing to increasing popularity of containerization, low cost of operation of water transport, and increase in the number of new ports.

On the basis of end use, the logistics market is segregated into healthcare, manufacturing, aerospace, telecommunication, government & public utilities, banking & financial services, retail, media & entertainment, technology, trade & transportation, and others. The manufacturing segment accounted for the highest revenue in 2017. The growth of the segment is attributed to increase in demand for procuring, distribution, & handing of raw materials and finished products.

The factors, such as growing e-commerce industry, rise in reverse logistics operations, and increase in trade-related agreements, fuel the market growth. In addition, rise of tech-driven logistics services and growing adoption of IoT-enabled connected devices are also expected to drive the market growth. However, lack of control of manufacturers on logistics service, poor infrastructure, and higher logistics costs hinder the market growth. Further, emergence of last mile deliveries, logistics automation, and cost cutting & lead time reduction due to adoption of multi-modal system are some of the factors that are expected to foster the logistics market growth.
